Can people with hypertension hold their breath for long?

Master Stephen Co
Alternative & Complementary Medicine

After you have the physical movements of pranic breathing down, add these powerful rhythm and retention sequences. But one cautionary note before you begin: If you have high blood pressure, you should not hold your breath longer than one second. Although pranic breathing stimulates the navel, which is the body’s primary storehouse of prana, it also stimulates the meng mein chakra, which is located opposite the navel on the back. The meng mein controls blood pressure. Thus, for people with hypertension, a longer breath retention could increase their blood pressure beyond their safety range.
